Legal disputes are costly and can cause disruptions to a business’s operations. Effectively managing a dispute will prevent additional consequences, including reputational damage and stakeholders’ loss of confidence.

Our experts, many of whom are former prosecutors or practicing attorneys, work with forensic accountants and computer forensic specialists to support clients in civil litigation, criminal matters, and arbitrations, developing pertinent facts critical to achieving the desired result. We identify, preserve, and analyze electronically stored information, develop underlying factual evidence, and provide key business intelligence on adversaries, witnesses, and third parties. BRG’s litigation intelligence teams verify or refute the backgrounds of proffered experts and other witnesses; recover, analyze, and construct electronic evidence and financial records; and conduct asset searches to facilitate post-judgment collection of awards.

BRG professionals can provide investigative and strategic consulting support along the entire dispute spectrum, from pre-complaint to post-judgment. We have provided intelligence and consulted on contentious matters involving shareholder disputes, accounting fraud and employee malfeasance, theft of intellectual property, product liability class actions, environmental claims, and antitrust cases, among others.
